are always quick to blame president obama when the market goes down. do you think they are going to give president obama credit? do you think they are going to thank him when the market goes up, up, up? of course not. we will tell you why. we will talk about that and awhole lot more, with the latest, today's current news update in los angeles, here is lisa ferguson. good morning, lisa. >> hey bill. good morning, everyone. here is what's on the president's schedule today. first up, he is having lunch with hillary clinton in the private dining room at the whitehouse at 12:30. yesterday, the senate confirmed senator john kerry to replace clinton as secretary of state in an overwhelming vote of 94 to 3. clinton was having an interactive online interview. as she heads out the door, she is leading -- leaving a legacy the most traveled secretary of state in history. more 950,000 miles, visited 112 countries and held 1700 meetings with world leaders. next up for the president today. he is talking immigration reform at 3:55 and 4:15. yesterday, obama unveiled his new
are covering the interview that has everybody talking. president obama's joint sit-down with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. was it his official nod for her potential 2016 run? >> there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> we don't have any tea. we've got some water here, the best i can tell. but, you know, this has been just the most extraordinary honor. >> is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton? doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> it would have covered up the awkward fact that they're setting her up for, you know, a presidential run if they broke some news. >> i love joe biden. i think he's earned a shot at it. but if hillary clinton wants to run how do you stand in the way of history? >> joining me now is msnbc and nbc latino contributor, victoria soto. fellow at the university of texas. great to have you here in person. let's jump in to explain to everybody the bipartisan framework. there are eight different sections. let's go over the first four. contingent on securing border and combatting visa oversay, increase surveillance equipment and agents a
go-to interview forum. "60 minutes" sitting down with steve kroft. president obama has preferred going and sitting down to steve kroft "60 minutes" more than any other television format interview person out there. steve kroft has got the interviews. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> are you winding up? >> well, let me just say, the irony here is that "60 minutes," which i think is a quality show, it's put some good stuff on. clearly withheld the news from an interview with president obama back in september that turned out to be push for innovation no a presidential debate and i think had a bearing on this election. basically they interviewed president obama on september 129, the day after the benghazi attacks and the president said and i think i'm quoting it's too early to tell whether or not this is terror related. this became a real issue in the campaign, when the president retroactively said no i always described it as a terror attack. "60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack
, a tiny. let me say something about the economy for a moment. it was, exhibit a -- obama is upside down in his approval ratings on every economic ratings measure. is accepted that he had a negative approval on taxes, spending, gas prices, he was upside down. we were not the only people who knew that. they were going to do something about that. then it was, the economy is number one to 42%. romney has been a job creator. he has made things. he has hired and fired people. he knows how things around. he will put that experience to washington. there are a couple of things wrong with that. one is, the economy by itself got romney and obama 43% and 42% each. you need over 50% to win. and i think we stopped right there. the obama keep -- the obama people kept adding more with abortion, hurricane sandy. they were able to get and realize that although the economy is the most important, that is not all. voters do not go into the ballot box and only choose one issue as to why -- where do people who believe in free well, human reason, and intelligence and your ability to walk, to gum, and a shovel
to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college football coach lou holtz. >> about 9:30 i get this text, the country is overwith. we're not doing this again. i already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he came in to speak to our 34 new members. and before he went over to talk to them, he came to my office. he is moaning and groaning. i said, lou, would you stop? we're americans. we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> and that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now for a look at the national weather, here is bill karins with the forecast. it's cold, right? >> lou holtz isn't happy all that's come out either. here's what we're dealing with out there this morning. snow has made its presence in the washington, d.c. area. we haven't had a lot over this winter period, especially think morning from washington, d.c., southward driving through virginia to fredericksburg, al
week, chicago teenager hadiya pendleton was in washington for president obama's inauguration. she was gunned down in a park just a few blocks from her school. the apparent innocent victim of a gang war. president obama made gun control a top priority for his second term. he's pushing lawmakers to pass legislation that will limit the number of rounds in a magazine clip, renew a ban on so-called assault weapons, and require universal background checks for gun purchases. the nra says it is no longer on board with that because it just won't work. >> you are never going to get criminals to go through universal background checks. >> reporter: republicans and even some rural state democrats agree. that is a big challenge for president obama. rob and sunny, back to you. >> all right, thanks a lot, karen. >>> the world's biggest retailer has made a decision about ammunition sales. wal-mart customers may buy only three boxes of ammo a day. because of limited supplies these days. with demand up for bullets, wal-mart says it is striking a balance between serving hunters and sportsmen and sell
on the right who had defected to obama, and i named them, and i said that i was going down with the mccain ship because i knew it would be going down and i wasn't going to waiver. i never imagined i would support obama over mccain. i was very strongly for mccain. i thought he was a very good man. he didn't run a very strong campaign. we seem to have a habit of doing that. but here's what's interesting about obama. if you remember the transition, he made very centrist appointments. he appointed a -- he had, for example, he kept gates at defense. he picked geithner for treasury who had worked and -- hand and glove with the bush administration through the financial crisis. he picked hillary as secretary of state, volcker was one of the major advisors. the former president of harvard, i'm getting -- summer was in treasury. these are not radical appointments. what's interesting about obama is when he ran in 2008 he ran as a rorschach test. he was a man into whom you could pour all of your own visions and hopes. he was not a very distinctly radical candidate when he ran. that was the brilliance of hi
criminal conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we ruling. acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell. support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line. caller: i am confused because i am getting background noise or something. i want to ask about the benghazi situation. in the hearings the other da
by president obama. >> debbie wasserman-shultz, aka switzerland. i want to pass along, you can catch more of andrea mitchell's sit-down interview with hillary clinton coming up today at 1:00 p.m. eastern. we're back with much more right after this. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. [ male announcer ] finally, mom's oven-baked tastes straight from the microwave. like oven-roasted chicken in a creamy alfredo sauce. marie callender's new comfort bakes. it's time to savor. >>> welcome back, we want to show you live pictures of a house in aurora alabama town, where s.w.a.t. teams are trying to defuse a hostage situation. a man is holded up in an underground shelter with a 6-year-old child. the suspect was due in court today to answer to a charge of threatening his neighbors. last night officials reported that the
states of america, barack obama. applause [bleep] >> well, forget the healthcare law. this might be an even bigger deal for you. the president and hillary clinton sitting down for their first joint interview. the president just -- he hasn't done a joint interview with anyone other than the first lady, a sign joe says might be a go -- no-go for 2016. i don't suspect he is happy about this. >> i don't think so. maybe joe biden will drive the two of them to the interview. i don't know. but, look, biden obviously would like to be president obama's successor. one assumes hillary clinton would like to be that successor, and so who gets that first joint interview outside the first family? hillary clinton. joe biden can't be pleased with that. >> the timing is very interesting, is it not? >> well, this is hillary hillary clinton's val disk. i assume this is president obama's way of saying hale and farewell' and thank you for a job well done. it brings up a bigger question. president obama, if both of these two candidates run, is going to have to make a choice. either have to endorse one
has said, if we have to shut down the government to make sure president obama understands that, we're serious, that's almost treason, according to the 14th amendment. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you. at this time i yield one minute to a distguished member from illinois, mr. davis. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. davis: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in support of h.r. 325, base opped a simple principle if congress doesn't pass a budget, congress doesn't get paid. we cannot start the process of controlling spending in this country without a budget. we also cannot ask hard working taxpayers to manage their own budget when elected leaders fail to do sthosme house has passed a budget each of the last two years. the other body must do theirs if we are going to control the out of control spending. for years the senate has gotten away without passing a budget but they have found time to pass laws that increase spending. s that terrible way to run a government and
that could target the united states. >> even russia. forbarack obama's nominee secretary of defense wants america to back down. an end to our nuclear program, devastating defense cuts. call kay haga andn tell her to say no to chuck hagel before it is too late. host: "former senator chuck hage says he will make sure the u.s. military is prepared for any scenario in iran and is committed to all options to counter aggression from tehran. hagel also said he agrees with president obama's plans for steady reductions of u.s. troops in afghanistan, supports u.s. aid for missile systems and israel, and thinks sequester would be devastating, according to a wide-ranging policy answers the nominee for defense secretary submitted to the senate armed services committee. times ahead of the confirmation hearing on thursday." they have a link, the hill.com, to the 112-page document he submitted. "his advance responses to the policy questions shed light on what hagel will say at the hearing, when he will face appointed examination from senators who are opposed to or have raised concerns about his nominatio
of president obama's gun package, but you say it all comes down to people's behavior. what do you mean? >> effective gun control has many facets to it. assault weapons ban is an element, significant symbolism. but the reality is you want to control behavior. the behavior of people. and that's what we did in the '90s here in new york. that's what i did in los angeles for seven years. crime is caused by people. you focus on their behavior and one of the behavioral changes is insuring that everybody that wants to buy a firearm has to basically submit to an i.d. check. that's form of behavior control. a lot of laws, a lot of tools are necessary, but effectively what you're doing is trying to control behavior. >> gretchen: you say that supersedes legislation. i just want to show some crime stats from new york when you were in charge here in the '90s. so murders fell 70%, car theft down 61. robbery down 55%. burglary down 53%. what did you do significantly about behavior? >> we had a very assertive police force, a very large police force. did the same thing in los angeles with a small police

himself for the obama administration. i know he is going to be going into the administration for some type of position. he is not a bad man. he did come down here to promote the south coast rail system, which we have been waiting for for 40 years. all liberal issues he is just a little bit too lenient. we have so much waste in government. i would like to see someone conservative in the governorship to weed out all this fraud. we go to work hard every day and we shake our heads when we come home every night. host: let's take a listen to one of the republican governors in the country who has become a leading voice in gop issues. this is chris christie in his state of the state address. he starts by talking about hurricanes in the budde goes from there. >> there is plenty of evidence that new jersey has not let's stop our turnaround. and i'm unemployment is coming down -- unemployment is coming down. 2011 was our best private sector job growth in 20 years. personal income set a record high in new jersey for the seventh quarter in a row. income tax receipts -- sales of new homes are up. consum
obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president that bankrupted america. so all of us around this table, regardless of our political stripes, have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that doesn't happen. and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence so we can have our voices heard as to do we really want to send $55 million to indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rates in indonesia when we have babies here who could probably benefit from the same expenditure? i think that's about enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of cumulative leave play, and the lord blessed it to get into sell of $100 million of net worth, and the success i've enjoyed comes from, i believe, three things. one is the fact that the workers or that god put in my life, 70 people who helped me pick stocks, interact with the clients and, secondly, was a hospitable governmental environment. you had a taxation and a regulato
>>> this morning on "world news now," presidential praise. barack obama and hillary clinton were once political rivals. >> this morning as secretary of state clinton gets ready to leave the white house, she may be stepping down with what sounds like a presidential endorsement. it's monday, january 28th. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning. i'm sunny hostin. >> happy monday, everybody. i'm rob nelson. we'll get to our top political headlines in just a second, including a bipartisan deal on one of the president's pet projects. could be some major headway being made on immigration reform, which was a big focus of president obama's inaugural address. kind of a failed promise from his first term, but gaining steam in the second. >>> also this morning, tragedy in south america. the nightclub fire that has stunned the world. what investigators are learning this morning as brazil gets ready to bury more than 200 victims and still counting. >> terrible tragedy there. >>> and the nasty winter weather system that couldn't come at a worse time. snow and ice hit the midwest over the

are called nation building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down and, drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for those changes. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, maybe you could start out and talk a bit about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is quote going to happen. i'll give you the mic. >> well, it's a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it's near certainty. once the sequestration provision was written into the budget. sal talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i really regarded as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is the erosion of the point of vanishing almost of the bipartisan political consensus for military strength, for key strength, people used to see. and that's rea
, unfortunately, under president obama's presidency. does it concern you, chief, that federal prosecutions per month in 2011 compared to those in 2010, the number of filings went down 7.9% and were down 28.8% from 2006 in federal court. does that concern you? >> i can tell you that in the baltimore police department -- >> i'm asking if those numbers concern you. >> no, because you are not including local prosecutions. i cannot stand here and tell you of a single case in baltimore county where a gun was involved that was not prosecuted. >> are we trying to pass a state or federal law today? it is a federal law we are trying to enforce. and with regard to the crimes of carrying a firearm during the violence or drug trafficking offense, those prosecutions declined. 5%.5. i would say that, first, we need to make sure we are doing our job. i would also note that although crime is a very important matter, we should never lose our emphasis on bringing down crime. the murder rate in america today is half what it was in 1993. we have made progress on that. and we can continue to drive those numbers dow
